What is the Business of Beauty Awards?

This year's ceremony, which is sponsored by Boots, Instax, Easilocks, Bare by Vogue Williams and Flormar, gives Ireland's top beauty professionals a chance to let their hair down and celebrate their achievements in style.



It’s the biggest and most prestigious industry event of the year, so dust off your makeup brushes and get ready for the glam.

As always, BOB will be a luxury affair. Taking place on March 10 at the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road, guests can enjoy a delicious cocktail reception from 6:30 pm.

Then, everyone will be guided through to the dining room, where they can indulge in dinner and dancing.

Darren Kennedy will play host on the night, announcing special surprises, gifts and treats; as well as awards for Ireland's brightest stars in hair, beauty and aesthetics.

A gift bag will be provided to all guests on departure – and let's not forget the legendary after-party.
